Type Conversion Failure Access 2007 Double


Board Regular
Dec 11, 2007
I want to import a texfile into an Access table.

My textfile contains the following:

The delimitor is set to semicolon.
The decimal symbol is set to comma - both in my regional settings and in the import whizard.

The target field is a Double with Decimal Places set to Auto.

I expect 25,1234 in my database field.
However, the result is an import error: Type Conversion Failure

I recently switched to Acces 2007. With the previous Access version this very same import worked fine.

Could someone confirm the same problem and/or a solution?

I just hope there will be no need to modify existing procedures only because I upgraded my Access.
